VMP Anthology: The Story of Willie Nelson
Introducing VMP Anthology: The Story of Willie Nelson: seven albums (nine LPs) full of music so good you’ll want to roll it up and smoke it. This collection will explore the vast discography of Willie Hugh Nelson — a living legend and one of the finest, most prolific contributors to the American songbook. We’ll travel across the borderline to his deep cuts, hop on the road again to some of his most towering artistic peaks, and stop by various phases and stages in between. We’re Willie excited for you to open doors to different eras and modes in his discography, and to give you an extended experience of a songwriting master’s body of work.

The limited-edition Story of Willie Nelson — available to preorder now — boasts nine LPs in total, each pressed on a variety of 180-gram color vinyl and mastered by Bernie Grundman. Like previous VMP Anthologies, the collection is housed in a commemorative box complete with a book filled of liner notes, photos and lyrics. Additionally, a podcast will accompany The Story of Willie Nelson that dedicates an episode to each of the albums in the set.

After a successful stint as a songwriter, Nelson released his debut album …And Then I Wrote in September 1962. “Sixty years ago, Willie Nelson – one of America’s national treasures – made his debut LP and in the years since, he’s changed both country music and the American songwriting tradition again and again,” Andrew Winistorfer, VMP’s Director of Classics & Country and author of the Anthology’s Listening Notes, said in a statement.

“Across close to 100 LPs, Willie Nelson has written about life, love, death, and the American experience. VMP Anthology: The Story of Willie Nelson aims to honor his indelible legacy through his most influential, important albums from the beginning of his career to today.”
